The delight of teas which overcome the sombre tone anil hue of the first hours of eventide, by the narinth of soft lamplit glow and the flume flicker and fire light cheer, added to the picturesque daintiness of the gracefully clad hostess who brews and serves her own "Bohea."

REST. ■me, Bleeping on a waste of ocean; Bundown, westward tralleth a red streak; One white sea bird, poised with scarce a motion, Challenges the stillness with a shriek; Challenges the stillness, upward wheeling, Where some rocky peak containeth her rude nest, While the shadows o'er the water they coma stealing, As they whisper to the silence: "There is rest I" Down where the broad Zambesi river Glides away into some shadowy lagoon, Uee the antelope, and hears the leaflets quiver, Shaken by the sultry breath of noon; Bees the water ripple in its flowing, Feels the atmosphere with fragrance all op presst, Dreams his dreams, but the sweetest is the knowing That above him and around him there is rest. Centuries have faded into shadow; Garth is fertile with the dust of man's decay; Pilgrims all men were to some bright El Dorado, But they wearied and they fainted by the way. Bome were sick with the surfeiture of pleasure; Some were bowed beneath a care encumbered breast, But, in turn, t...

hat—a YOUNG maD of 25 stood in a handsomely furnished drawing room. . In one hand he held a hat—a feat which looked all the more shabby from contrast with the rich curtain against which it brushed. In the other he held the round, white hand of a girl who was looking into his eyes. There were two pairs of eyes peering straight into each other. The girl was ■peaking. "Mamma says— that" Her voice trembled. "Well, what does she say?" "She ssys that you mustn't—you mustn't come" There was more faltering. "That I mustn't come here any more ?" "Yes." "Well, your mother is right to this; at least for the present. What else does she say 2" "That I'm not to O, I can't do it." "Well, go on."
